Wii U close to PS4/Xbox 720, will get multiplatform games

The Wii U won't be far behind the next generation PlayStation and Xbox in terms of visuals, according to Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata.

Importantly, that means the Wii U shouldn't be left out of multiplatform releases across all three consoles, as was the case with the Wii.

"Other companies might launch a next-generation console with more power, but we don't necessarily think that the difference between the Wii U and such console will be as drastic as what you felt it was between the Wii and the other consoles because there will be fewer and fewer differentiators in graphics," Iwata told investors.

"We cannot promise that the Wii U will never be excluded from multiplatform software for eternity, but we can at least assure you that the Wii U will not have such a big difference as the Wii had in comparison to how, on other platforms, developers could expect very different graphic capabilities of generating HD-applicable high-resolution graphics," he added.

"Naturally some consumers are very sensitive about such a small difference in graphics so that we will make efforts to make the most of the performance of the Wii U to keep up with technological innovations and not to make the system out-of-date soon."

Didn't the expansion pack only add a tiny bit of extra power?

But that was amazing back in the day :P

Close, but no cigar? Look how much people argued about the minute differences in graphics between Ps3/360 titles. Haters gonna hate! Fanboys gonna rant! But more importantly players gonna PLAY!
If this is indeed true, I would more than likely buy a wiiU. I want one console not two.

But....1st party titles are the killer. I hate missing out on good games as there are few enough these days as it is.
